This page was created to share some of my creations to enhance the Strat-O-Matic experience, mostly for the Card and Dice players.  I am a Strat-Veteran of almost 30 years, however returned recently from about 15 years off.  Check out my long term 1989-1990 NHL Replay if you have a chance: 1989-1990 NHL Replay

I have created team labels for Strat O Matic sets, and also in the process of continuing to create them for all my sets of Baseball, Hockey, Football, and Basketball.

In doing so, I borrowed a lot of content from the painstaking work of others.  Information was taken from wikipedia as well as:

https://www.hockey-reference.com/https://www.pro-football-reference.com/https://www.baseball-reference.com/

As far as logos, uniforms, and other patches and flair, they can be found at: (check them out!)

The attached are pdfs of each season labels I have created.  Personally, I use Avery labels, and these are printed on 5″ x 7″ sheets.  You can do what you wish with them, but if they are printed larger, I am unsure what the resolution will look like.  When printing, make sure any ‘fit to page’ box is not checked.  I use Avery 5450 labels for these.  Some people have been able to print these labels directly on envelopes.
For card storage, I use #6 coin envelopes for older baseball seasons, #7 for hockey.  For seasons  that contain many extra players and pitchers’ hitting cards, the teams may get snug so I have moved to #7 coin envelopes other than older baseball sets.  I have found that over time, teams will kind of form the envelope to its size, but I cannot vouch for the long-term storage effects on the cards as I just starting using these last year.
I place the team in the envelope, then carefully put the label on.  I reinforce each side of the label with 1/2 strip of scotch tape (extending just past the corners) because the label will flare up where the envelope bends with the cards and it will lose adhesion.
When playing, I prop the cards up somewhere to add some more flair.  The baseball sets also have weather and ballpark information for quick reference.
Please contact me with any comments, concerns, corrections, or requests (although I am committed to finishing my sets first).  Contact

1968 MLB Team Labels

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic: 1968 Strat O Matic Cards

Strat’s Description:

  • Highlights

    • Tiger Tales: Detroit, down 3 games to 1, stuns Cardinals to win World Series
    • Year of the Pitcher: Denny McLain last to win 30 (31-6); Bob Gibson’s 1.12 ERA
    • Batting Titles: Pete Rose: .335; Carl Yastrzemski: .301 (American League: .230)

    Full SummaryEnhanced with super-advanced features, the 1968 Major League season is re-created in time for the 50thanniversary of The Year of the Pitcher. In this memorable season, Detroit’s Denny McLain was the last to win 30 games (31-6, 1.96). Bob Gibson registered a miniscule 1.12 ERA in a year when seven qualifying pitchers had sub-2.00 ERAs. Nine of the top 20 men in Wins Above Replacement were starting pitchers, including Hall of Famers Gibson, Tom Seaver and Ferguson Jenkins. Gibson and McLain were the league MVPs.

    Maybe the most sensational pitching feat of all occurred in Game 7 of the World Series when Detroit’s Mickey Lolich, pitching on two day’s rest, threw a complete-game five-hitter to out-duel the mighty Gibson (winner of Game 7s in 1964 and 1967). That made Lolich 3-0 for the Series, which St. Louis once led three games to one.

    The American League hit a paltry .230 and Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski won the batting title at .301. After the season, MLB lowered all pitching mounds. But the Tigers had LF Willie Horton (.285-36-85, .895 OPS). Catcher Bill Freehan and 1B Norm Cash each hit 25 HR with more than 800 OPS. Hall of Famer Al Kaline, in his only World Series, had an .820 OPS. Pinch-hitter Gates Brown hit .370 with an 1.127 OPS in 92 AB.

    In the NL, Pete Rose led with a .335 average, Willie McCovey led with 36 HR, 105 RBI, .545 slugging and .923 OPS. The list of top sluggers is filled with legends: Richie Allen, Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Hank Aaron, Ron Santo, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Jimmy Wynn.

Highlights

  • Phantastic Phils: Phillies win their first World Series title as Carlton, Schmidt star
  • By George! … Brett hits .390 with power, leads KC to its first World Series
  • Speed to Burn: Henderson steals 100, Leflore 97, Moreno 96
Full SummaryOne of the most historic seasons ever featured the Philadelphia Phillies’ first World Series title in its 180-plus year history and the Kansas City Royals’ first World Series appearance. KC’s George Brett made the most serious run at a .400 batting average since Ted Williams in 1941. A dozen players made impressive contributions to their future Hall of Fame credentials.

One of the most exciting seasons ever featured many superstars, among them NL MVP Mike Schmidt (48 HR, 121 RBI, .624 slugging), AL MVP Brett (.390 BA, .454 OBP, .664 slugging), NL Cy Young Steve Carlton (24 wins, 286 strikeouts) and AL Cy Young Steve Stone (25 wins). Rickey Henderson had 100 stolen bases. Reggie Jackson hit .300 for the only time and led the AL with 41 HR. Eddie Murray, Gary Carter, Andre Dawson, Bruce Sutter, Don Sutton, Goose Gossage and Nolan Ryan also had huge years.

Strat’s Description:

  • Highlights

    • Best Bosox: WS champs win franchise-record 108 games in three 100-win-team AL
    • Drama Kings: Two teams win divisions by one game; record number of walk-off homers
    • Hitting it Big: Rookies Ohtani, Acuna, Soto blast their way to stardom

     

    Full SummaryThe best of 2018 Major League Baseball often was record-setting awesome. The Boston Red Sox won a franchise-best 108 games, then crushed all foes on an 11-3 romp through the post-season to win their fourth World Series in the past 15 seasons. First, they eliminated the arch-rival Yankees, who won 100 games for the first time since 2009. Next, Boston disposed off reigning champion Houston, which had won a franchise-record 103 games. Finally, the Red Sox triumphed in the Fall Classic over the Los Angeles Dodgers, which had returned to the Series for the second straight season.

    The Dodgers won the NL West by one game. That was Milwaukee’s margin in the NL Central, too, after a playoff win over the Chicago Cubs.

    Boston’s Mookie Betts and Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich won the MVP awards, but the honors would have been justified for Boston’s J.D Martinez, Houston’s Alex Bregman, Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez, the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout, Colorado’s Nolan Arenado or Trevor Story, the Chicago Cubs’ Javier Baez or St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter.

    Major League pitchers set the record for strikeouts. Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell and the New York Mets’ Jacob deGrom won the Cy Young awards, but Cleveland’s Corey Kluber, Boston’s Chris Sale, Washington’s Max Scherzer and Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola were deserving. Snell and Kluber were the season’s only 20-game winners, but a dozen others had records like Luis Severino’s 19-8, Myles Mikolas’ 18-4, A.J. Happ’s 17-6, Charlie Morton’s 15-3 and Noah Syndergaard’s 13-4.

    Hitting and pitching dual-threat star Shohei Ohtani and Atlanta’s Ronald Acuna won the Rookie of the Year Awards, but it was a great class with Washington’s Juan Soto, the Yankees’ Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar, the Dodgers’ Walker Buehler, Miami’s Brian Anderson and this group of Cardinals: Harrison Bader, Mikolas, Jack Flaherty and Jordan Hicks.

2017-2018 NHL Team Labels

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic:  2017-2018 Hockey Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Capital Offense: Washington outscores all in playoffs, wins team’s first Cup
  • Vegas, Baby: Best expansion team ever reaches Cup Finals
  • Century Season: 11 teams, 3 skaters with 100+ points
Full SummaryWhen expansion-team Vegas won the Pacific Division with the NHL’s fourth-best record, it was one of the best stories of NHL history. When the Knights dominated the first three rounds of the playoffs and then won Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, they threatened to be one of the greatest stories in sports history. Instead, the Washington Capitals reached their historic pinnacle – their first Stanley Cup in the franchise’s 44-year history.

This was a super-competitive NHL season that had seven 40-goal men, three 100-point men and 11 teams with at least 100 points. It took 97 points to qualify for the playoffs in the East (Florida missed out with 96) and 95 to qualify in the West (St. Louis’ 94 was not enough). This was a special season for Presidents Cup winner Nashville (117 points) and Winnipeg (114 points, first trip to the conference finals). Tampa Bay led the East with 113 points and the NHL in goals before bowing to Washington in the conference finals.

Alex Ovechkin, the MVP of the playoffs, led the NHL (again) by scoring 49 goals. Edmonton’s Connor McDavid repeated as the league’s scoring leader, with 108 points, six more than Philly’s Claude Giroux, who tied with Winnipeg’s Blake Wheeler for the league lead with 68 assists. Las Vegas’ William Karlsson was third in goals (43), first in plus/minus (+49) and first in scoring percentage (23.4). Ten qualifying goalies had save percentage of at least .924, lead by St. Louis’ Carter Hutton (.931), who also led in goals-against average (2.09).
